Our Study, sans wallpaper

January 15, 2009 at 10:12 am | Posted in During, Our Home, Our Study, Projects | 2 Comments

We finally did it! We removed the wallpaper from the walls AND ceiling of the study! It only took about two months longer than I projected (why is it that these things always take so much longer than I think they will?). This was a chore that would best be described using several expletives, followed by exclamation points, but this is a family blog, so we promise to keep it clean.

Check it out:

Alright.  On second thought, it doesn’t look that great.  But that’s because we still have to clean all of the tiny bits of wallpaper off of the walls (that’s our next step).

Two of the walls in this room weren’t even papered (the tan ones), making it even more ridiculous that it took us this long to get it all done.  But, in our defense, there were 52* layers of paint over the wallpaper, making it incredibly hard to get down to the wallpaper to remove it.

I hope to find time this weekend to clean the walls, fill the holes in the wall left by the previous owners, and paint… but we’ll see… (because, remember, these things always take much longer than I expect them to.)

*slight exaggeration.

  1. It looks just beautiful! 🙂 ha! Keep up the good work!

  2. I can’t believe you finished it! How about putting a tin ceiling up like in one of your kitchen pictures? If you do that to the whole house, you won’t have to worry about the cracks!
